Itineraries with Mycenae and Epidaurus Guided Tour

Mainland Greece Adventure - 7 Days

History buffs who prefer to be outdoors can experience the ancient world on this tour of mainland Greece's top classical sites. From Mycenae to Meteora, you'll visit ruins spanning back across the ages: sample the descendants of millennia-old grapevines in Nemea, see where the tale of the Iliad started at Mycenae, and tread on the same ground as the first Olympic athletes. End the trip hiking around Delphi and Meteora's six active clifftop monasteries, surrounded by Mediterranean landscape.

Mainland Greece Road Trip - 16 Days

On this 16-day road trip of Athens and the Peloponnese, you'll see historical sites, sample local flavors, and discover beautiful castles and monasteries. Spend a few days in the capital learning about the Acropolis and enjoying culinary delights of the modern era. Then make your way west for wine tasting in Nemea, stops at several archaeological ruins, and visits to charming villages before ending your journey back in Athens.

Historic Peloponnese and Zakynthos - 11 Days

Some of the most dramatic feats of athleticism of the ancient world took place at Olympia, but you won't need to train quite at that level to take on this 11-day itinerary. After hearing the myths of the Acropolis, your tour will take you to seaside Nafplio, historic Mycenae, and the former stadium grounds at Olympia. Then head to the island of Zakynthos for four nights on the seashore before you return to Athens.
